What's Up With This, Commissioners Girtz and Kinman?!!

November 8, 2012

So, the ACC Commission has allowed a building moratorium for the Buena Vista district...Hooooray for the townies!

Now, let's travel across town to South Milledge Avenue, where four local small businesses are being run out in three weeks.

Courtyard, LLC, a land speculation company, applied to the ACC Planning Commission to build some sort of four story thing on the land where these businesses sit.

THE PLANNING COMMISSION TURNED COURTYARD, LLC DOWN ON THIS PROJECT!! Normally, this would be the end of this proposed development.

But however, Commissioners Girtz and Kinman pulled some sort of executive levers to move this project on through.

Now these two Commissioners were curiously silent during the Downtown WalFart development debacle...Let's see what they have to say here.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
